With the luxury of a private yacht and all the top-of-the-line gear any pro angler could desire, this upscale fishing charter boat out of Los Suenos Marina offers a majestic saltwater fishing experience.
You’d have a hard time finding a more modern vessel with better amenities that was made for fishing in Costa Rican waters. Built in 2017 by the Los Suenos-area outfit Maverick Yachts, this cold-molded craft with a bold blue hull was constructed with local materials such as Laurel Blanco, durable hardwood that’s native to Costa Rica. Twin Caterpillar engines take it to a cruising speed of 30 knots.
Meet Your Seasoned Captain
Trained by Maverick fleet captain Daniel Espinosa, Captain Juan Carlos Fallas has been fishing these waters since he was a teen. His substantial time at sea has reeled in a host of tournament trophies including Overall Winner in the 2006 Los Sueños Billfish Tournament and a second-place win in the prestigious PCCA Costa Rica King Sailfish competition. Known locally as “Juanca,” Captain Fallas was also featured in a National Geographic profile for hooking a rare albino blue marlin that weighed in at 300 pounds.
Outfitted for Big Game Fishing
Let’s get right to the gear. Among the high-tech gadgets, you’ll find a wide range of the latest equipment, including CHIRP sonar, Icom VHF radios and Garmin electronics with twin 17-inch displays on the bridge. There are two big fish boxes, a 60-gallon-capacity live well and eight tuna tubes on the transom. From downriggers for pro trolling and Rupp outriggers to Miya Epoch electric reels and a custom-designed fighting chair, a full range of world-class gear almost guarantees a day of plentiful catches.
Delight in an Exclusive Yachting Experience
While the gear aboard this Maverick is impressive, it’s luxuries are equally amazing. Walk along teak decks found across the vessel and pass through a mahogany door to behold an air-conditioned salon. There’s ample space to welcome up to ten guests. From generous double dining areas to the bulkhead and trim throughout, the elegant area is awash with high-polished teak and flooded with natural light from wraparound windows. Both the main salon seating and adjacent dinette convert to daybeds.
Hot and cold dishes that are served throughout the day are prepared on the full galley’s granite countertops. Slide open a hidden panel on the bulkhead to reveal a high-definition television or listen to a Fusion stereo system with a subwoofer and Sirius XM satellite channels. Down below you’ll find two bathrooms and three well-appointed staterooms with room to sleep six.
Ascend a soaring satin-finish tuna tower to do some fish spotting or just to take in amazing views over expanses of calm Central Pacific waters. Settle into seating on the mezzanine for equally magnificent scenery as you breathe in the invigorating salt air. From relishing the luxurious interior spaces to angling with premier gear under the guidance of a top-notch crew, a fishing trip on this exquisite Los Suenos charter boat is sure to be a high point of your Costa Rica vacation.
